Avocado Pizza

Sorry folks, it's been a while. We are still cooking on a regular basis, but we've just been too busy to take photos and blog.

One reason we have to keep up on cooking is that we are getting a CSA (community supported agriculture) box every other week. If we don't cook regularly, the produce piles up. It seems like some things come in waves and we tend to get a lot of one particular fruit or vegetable. For a while it was apples, and now we're been getting a lot of avocados in our box. They are good avocados, but there is only so much guacamole you can eat. So, we have been searching for avocado recipes to get out of the guacamole rut. With that in mind, we found "Fresh Tomato Pizza with Avocado" from Jack Bishop's "A Year in a Vegetarian Kitchen."

When we looked at the ingredients we thought that it could not possibly be bad and we were right--it was delicious. The ingredients are: fresh tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, a jalapeno chile, farmer cheese (we used goat cheese instead), avocado, lime juice, and cilantro. We got a frozen pizza dough so it was pretty quick to put together.
